To give young people with additional needs a sporting chance. We believe that sport and recreation are essential to development. We are passionate about helping to create more opportunities for young people to take part in these activities.
Young people with additional needs are less than half as likely to take part in sport at least once a week than young people without a disability.
We help to achieve this mission by focusing on two key areas and donating – minibuses, specially adapted where necessary and sports and recreational equipment, including sports wheelchairs.
To date, we have donated:
Sports Wheelchairs and Sports Bikes
Supported Sport Clubs
Lord Taverner’s Ireland has maintained a great partnership with Cricket Leinster in recent years. As their preferred charity partner, we have also supported them through our collaborative work with the Table Cricket Programme.
The Irish Wheelchair Association has also been a great support to Lord’s Taverners Ireland. Through them, the charity has been fortunate to identify and help many clubs and individuals across Ireland to acquire specialised minibuses and sporting equipment.
Throughout its history the Lord’s Taverners Ireland has also benefitted greatly from the advice and support provided by The Lord’s Taverners UK including the three directors nominated to serve on our Board, initially John Hooper and Leo Callow and most recently Tom Rodwell.
Join us at our Christmas Lunch 2022
We are absolutely delighted to announce that the annual Christmas lunch will take place in the Intercontinental Hotel in Ballsbridge, Dublin, on Thursday 15th December 2022 following two years of cancellations due to covid pandemic restrictions.
Attendees will meet old friends, enjoy a splendid meal and have lots of laughs with entertaining speakers such as Oliver Callan while helping Lord’s Taverners Ireland in its work. The Christmas lunch has always been our main fundraising event of the year and thanks to your support we can continue to give young people a sporting chance by raising much needed funds to purchase specialised sports equipment and minibuses.
We really hope you will join us! To book a table, please visit our events page to download our booking form or contact Paula at email@example.com.
